Jarunee studied food preparation and cooking as an apprentice to her uncle, who was the Executive Chef at the 5-star Oriental Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand. She has been a chef for 15 years and loves making people happy with her food. “I love to cook and see people enjoying my food,” Jarunee says. Her favorite dish to prepare is Thai Curries. The most challenging part of her job as a chef is managing the restaurant. Judging from the consistently long waiting lines on Fridays and Saturdays at Thai Paradise, the restaurant in Folsom owned by Jarunee and her husband, Alex, she seems to be handling the challenge quite well. When Jarunee is not cooking, you can find her enjoying growing flowers.
